Wow...a RARE female conservative this morning...
The Sunday Morning Bray, by Bray!
Dear friends, since God so LOVED us, we also ought to LOVE one another. 1 John 4:11
We are clearly seeing a desperate play by a desperate Party. To attempt to switch the discussion from forcing a church to abandon its beliefs by state dictate is something only a tyranny like Nazi Germany would try. Then to cloak it behind womens right to have contraception would be laughable if it wasnt so tyrannical. Their Party is so obsessed with sex and being true to their faith they cant understand why anything or anyone would disagree with their world view.
The saddest person in this entire fiasco is Sandra Fluke. Here is a woman who is so politically and spiritually motivated she has no idea what a fool she has become. The goal of every liberal is to be a better liberal than the one next to you so it becomes a holier then thou competition. If you are tolerant of homosexuals, Mooselimbs and all the deemed inferior races than you are a good person. You are certainly a better person than those intolerant, racist, sexist Conservatives and Christians. For liberals intolerance as they label it is one of the few unforgivable sins. Intolerance is right up there with being for big oil making a profit or driving an SUV.
The religion of liberalism is a godless cult founded on evolution. Evolution was a simple theory which Darwin who believed in God thought would be proved or disproved within twenty years. A hundred and fifty years later scientists are still trying to prove it with no success. It has become their belief system rather than a science since it has so many gaps in it such as no transitory fossils including a hybrid man monkey so scientists rely on consensus. They have agreed it is fact and anybody who disagrees are not scientists and heretics who are virtually burned at the stake. They have declared it truth and nobody dares to question the consensus for fear of retribution.
Now evolution claims that animals and especially man is always evolving so the basis of science believes that they have evolved into a superior atheistic intellect. They use the same consensus to all agree with their societal and political views so when you combine them with the establishment press secretaries who agree with these liberal theories then you have an overwhelming belief in liberalism is the norm. These people all believe they have evolved and are more intelligent than those ignorant Christians who still believe in God and the Easter Bunny which brings them a sense of superiority to others. This means that their view of the world is superior to the less evolved so the others opinions and rules really dont apply to them.
The only godlike entity to a fundamental liberal would be a group of evolved people or an evolved gummit. If they are in charge of gummit then they are godlike themselves and are not encumbered by trivial things like rules, laws or Constitutions. How can a 250 year old document be as evolved as they are especially when they are trying to instill a more evolved form of government like communism? They cant be slowed down by that so they manipulate the political theatre to make it look like one thing such as the oppression of women when it is something else which is the oppression of every God fearing American and their freedom of religion.
Communism has always required the elimination of Christians and the Christian churches. Hitler killed somewhere over ten million Christians and Stalin killed over 30 million. You have to eliminate the Christians since they do not believe gummits are the highest order and get in the way of so many evolved ideas such as infanticide and doctor assisted suicide as well as all the moral issues. Christians believe in absolutes rather than moral relativism or ends justifying the means.
This is another reason our Founding Fathers were so brilliant since they understood the importance of the church in the state as well as the dangers of the state in the church. Our evolved academia has turned that around by consensus to warn of the dangers of God in the state and now they want the state to rule the Church.
Young people like Fluke have been brainwashed inside these sanctuaries of commie worship and has accepted all of these empty beliefs. She believes women cannot be empowered without unlimited access to birth control and abortion. She has been convinced by consensus babies hold her back from her potential when in actuality they are what makes her life miraculous. She has been told the very thing that makes women superior to men is what holds her back from them. She has been told that turning her womb into a tomb will make her life better when in reality it leads to depression, drugs, alcoholism and death spiritually and often physically. As it turns out this consensus of evolving to a higher being is a false worship and in reality is a devolving into a lower humanity leading to spiritual destruction.
We can trace every one of our problems today to their religion. We have had so many agenda driven studies which provide a theory to promote their agenda and then gather consensus to validate those theories. You can take any issue such as abortion, Global Warming, energy, welfare, education and on and on and trace it back to the theory and see how bad consensus science has made it and is allowing it to continue. We continue to brainwash people like this young woman to continue the cycle of destruction.
Fortunately thanks to the internet and alternative news this cult is being exposed for the agenda driven religion that it represents. They have been belittling Christians for decades for needing God as a crutch yet they use their worship of gummit as a wheelchair. They have become cattle waiting for the slaughter while voting for bigger meat packing plants for the rest of us. They give all of these arguments how they have logic and scientific thought when all they really have is faith in the unknown explained by their form of a cult consensus religion. Unfortunately they have sucked many churches and Christians into this false religion through social justice which has added to our problems and need to evaluate what god they are worshiping.
Conservatives want to fight this war without God while liberals dont have that problem as their followers bring their god to the fight which is part of their worship. Fluke has become a saint in their chuch for being a victim and damaging Rush in their manufactured attack on the Constitution proving their superiority to both. Until Conservatives begin to understand this is a war on which God or gods America will worship, we are debating the wind.
Pray for America
Note: The above opinion is not necessarily mine, but FReeper Brays. If you wish to discuss this, please ping Bray.
Good morning and thanks for the ping.
Yep, the dynamic duo is back along with Chuck you Shumer and even Harry Reid. Wow. I’m sure we’ll learn a lot today, huh? < /S >
Glad you noticed!
For me, it’s to freakin’ early to get up.
I actually had to go back to last week’s line up to ensure I wasn’t reposting an old guest list. The only thing that kept me confused is Chuck U. He hasn’t been on in a while. And McCain and Linda on the same Sunday has been a while, too.
All the rest have been on at one show or the other for the past few months....
If it’s Sunday, it’s John and Linda.
I met Marsha Blackburn once...she drove some distance thru a terrible rainstorm to attend a town hall with Tennessee conservatives a few years back...a class act.
Thanks AB. Welcome to daylight savings time (or are we always on it now?)
thanks for the thread once more AB. I’m glad to be back in town. A little bit cold for me last week up your way.
Morning AB, All .
Am singing at the ten am mass this morn. Also have precious granddaughter, who is STILL missing her front teeth, dear Lord, when do they grow back?
She looks cute now but she will be one ugly adult with missing front teeth.
I’m just sayin’.
As always, thank you AB, for doing the thread. Won’t be around much today as I am meeting daughter halfway tween Delaware and Merryland to drop off the kiddle with the missing teeth. She will, however, also be singing in the choir with us but Lord I hope she doesn’t sing too loud.
American Idol she is not.
Will join in later today to catch up with the talk show stuff plus the insights and analyses of wise Freepers.
Been a busy weekend, whew .love the kid but love to return her.
Once again you describe who the enemy is, the facts, not fiction about communism and how they try and advance their evil doctrine and the part I like the most, your point about how they try and:
to attempt to switch the discussion
this has been my theme for some time now.
The right hand of the regime is making all the noise but the left hand, the unseen hand, does all the damage.
These clowns would give anything if they could change the discussion to the made up issue of contraception so they could stop us talking about how they have had no budget in over 1,000 days, spend 120 billion more each month than they take in and more than that in some months, have nationalized 1/6 of our economy through obamcare and worse yet have said "No" to energy security by killing off Gulf of Mexico drilling, drilling on federal lands and killing off pipelines both in Alaska and Canada just to name a few misdeeds along with $4.00 gas that the regime would rather not be discussed.
It's up to us to see through this charade and bring up the issues that should be debated for the upcoming elections.
Bring up issues that effect Americans,we win they lose,its that simple.
The driveby media is now officially Istvestia/Pravda and we do not get the truth from them at all. And both political sides are in on it.
Read the other links on that thread about buried/not reported stories that the government doesn't want you to know...
So true. bray.
This is a spiritual battle of the highest magnitude. The social and political effects are offshoots we can see and the results of it, not the causes behind it.
Secularists, the followers of false religions, and most Liberals find themselves on the wrong side of this war - despite their outward politics. They worship their own false gods, not the God of the Bible and the Universe. Almost all of us were at one time in that same hopeless camp as well. The same Jesus who saved and redeemed us is perfectly willing and capable of doing the same for them. Ultimately, some will be turned.
In the meantime, the battle will rage back and forth at the levels we can see and we will mistake those effects for the real causes.
Schumer, Graham, McCain, Reid.
The Quadfecta. [Change the e to u and that is what we are really getting.]
Another little tidbit I caught during the DNC dave/Santorum interview--DNC dave accused Republicans of equal guilt in no energy plan for the country and not helping to stop the drive towards $5.00 gas.AN obvisou lie/misrepresentation.
Santorum shouted back real quick
? that's wrong we vote for more drilling, "for" the pipeline for all the right moves its your side that does not.
Hearing the response DNC dave did what he has to do most times he is challenged:
HE CHANGED THE VENUE, WENT ON TO A NEW AREA FOR EXPLORATION!!
Just shows folks any time these bastards drivebys are challenged they fold like the cheap assed suits they truly are.
In response, the Speaker points out how weak Romney is.
He then gives erudite ideas.
The Speaker talks about the breadth of his support.
However, Wallace the trained-RomneyBOT
appears to ONLY be interested in Romney once again
as he begins this weeks Romney-talking-points
for FOX-Bain News.
As expected each week, Chris Wallace lies to the audience
purporting Romney is a "conservative".
[Like his support of anthropormorphic global warming
hoax two nights ago?]
Again, Wallace again "demands" Speaker Gingrich
remove himself from the race for his beloved Willard,
and deftly uses a video with his misstatements.
The Speaker responds with specific points exposing the bias
of the FOX video and partially correcting
the Pimp's nonsense.
In this round, Wallace simply cannot touch
anything the Speaker has said so in response,
Chris Wallace (is he really a sister wife of Romney?)
avoids every single issue which the knowledgeable
Mr. Gingrich says ... and switches to the topic of 'energy'.
Energy? The Speaker then responds with specific points to lower
energy to $2.50 or less.
Mr. Gingrich: We must "develop energy resources to
be independent of the Middle East".
Mr. Gingrich: "Dr. Chu wants us to pay European levels (for gasoline)".
Once again, the Wallace cannot touch anything
the Speaker has said, so once again in response,
Wallace begins a complicated segue, saying
something densely unclear about drilling.
The Speaker answers quantitatively again and with specifics.
Yet again, Wallace cannot touch, or respond to,
anything the Speaker has said as he knocks Wallace's
question 'out of the park', so yet again
Wallace segues to a new topic ... Afghanistan.
The Speaker explains the roles of US tolerance,
justice, and other issues that the media just will not touch.
Will Wallace respond this time? Nope.
Wallace again "reads" from his Romney playbook
as he avoids everything the Speaker has said for the n-th time.
The Speaker continues, and defends America and
demands an apology from Karzai to the American people.
Mr. Gingrinch says that it is time for Americans not to tolerate
this. He points out how Pakistan help hid Osama and then
went after those Pakis who leaked Osama's position to
America. Will Mr. Wallace respond finally like a
reporting anchor? Nope, the he ignores the matter and
goes back to the Romney playbook.
End of Round 1:
Mr. Gingrich - Score 1
FOX "News" - 0 - Biased as ever
I just love it when, as Wallace is teeing up his next question, you can see the corner’s of Newt’s mouth turn up just the tiniest little bit as he anticipates knocking the ball out of the park. I also really like it when Newt actually smiles that ‘mischievous schoolboy’ smile and you know he is going to decimate the questioner. Newt was terrific this morning. :-)
He's being grilled by the now smiling DNC dave who is determined to make the issue about contraception and why everything is not free for all instead of the big issues which McDonnell quickly points out are the ones we all know: taxes,debt etc.
Nice to see to see our side countering the lies of the DBM left. Now dnc dave characterizing McDonnell as "an extremist" since he won't talk about contraception---just too good!! Bob McDonnell--closing remarks
we've gone from hope and change to division and malaise
Just too good! this guy is a winner!!

Newt is interviewed on Face the Nation

Yes, I concede, I exaggerate. But my point is essentially sound.
By the way, I thought Santorum did rather well.
WallAss is dying to be a DBM journalist on a DBM net. He just can't quite get there yet.
That is their strategy, pretend it is a secular war when it is purely spiritual. Until we are ready to fight the real war we will always be losing the fake one.
We have to question the results and agenda of all science. Rush was talking about a doctor writing a book admitting cholesterol has no effect on heart disease and a low fat diet damages the circulation. Was this agenda driven science to damage the beef industry and literally killing people?
Pray for America
I forget to reset the wall clocks, and effectively missed most of the morning talkies.
Apparently, based on the number of commentaries in this thread this morning, either many others forgot to reset their clocks or the morning fair didn’t offer much worth commenting on.
Dr. Henry Morris laid out the case pretty well a few years ago...
Is Mitt too smart to show up or too dumb to show up.
Newt has a couple more chances and if it doesn’t happen in those southern states, he might pull out. He says he won’t but ....
The press would rather focus on small issues that are sexy and people can relate to.
The left knows this. Hence the fluke flap.
Morning AB! Forgot to spring forward. Santorum on MTP - asked about Gingrich staying in - Santorum says eventually it will work itself out. Santorum walking lightly around any calls for GIngrich to get out of the race. When asked about Romney - Santorum says the race is not a mathmetical formula (referring to the delegate count),...lots of dynamics involved. Brings up the fact that ROmney was instrumental in moving up dates of primary elections that were beneficial to his campaighn. Also brings up the fact that a lot of these delegates are uncommitted, the superdelegates.
Gregory brings up delegate map showing Rommey winning coasts and Santorum winning the heartland....Gregory asks how do you overcome the fact that Romney is winning big states needed in presidential election? Santorum points out Romney’s weaknesses in winning key states (like MI, OH) by much...his campaign (Santorum’s) has the grass roots momentum.
Gregory again asks Santorum about asking Newt to get out of the race.....Santorum responds he didn’t ask Gingrich to get in, he certainly won’t ask him to get out.
Gregory asks about economy - Santorum talks about jobs that can be created by building Keystone Pipeline, other places that obama continues to say no on drilling. Impact of energy alone is significant on economy....add on regulations, obama care,..... damage to economy can be lessened by immediately addressing these issues.
Gregory says it’s Repubs fault just like dem’s as far as energy costs. Santorum strongly disagrees. Talks about radical ideology of this administaraion that says we can drill in Brazil, but not in our own backyards.
Gregory asks about Santorum past record as Sen.... says weren’t your votes for “big govt”? Santorum says he never voted for increase in spending in any appropriations bill. Goes after Romney espcially over romneycare.
Gregory asks what is the issue that will hurt Romney’s campaign (guess, Gregory is trolling for opposition research for obama) Santorum says essentally romneycare = obamacare, also brings up climate change issues.
Gregory asks about influence of Santorum’s wife - santorum says his wife helps him keep things in perspective when it comes to what he says on the campaign trail.
No doubt,as well as its their meme, they created it,made it up out of thin air.If they don’t pursue it they know it will die and they will have to talk about the real issues that don’t work well for the dear leader.
The thread has been pulled??!!
If the economy adds about 208,000 jobs per month, which was the average monthly rate for the best year of job creation in the 2000s, then it will take until February 20208 yearsto close the jobs gap. Given a more optimistic rate of 321,000 jobs per month, which was the average monthly rate for the best year of job creation in the 1990s, the economy will reach pre-recession employment levels by April 2016not for another four years.
MTP - brings up story of 15 civilians killed in Afghanistan
McDonnell-(Gov, Virginia) it’s tragic, one incident like this affects the winning hearts and mind strategy. (I believe he has a daughter serving)
o’Malley - we look for steady calm leadershop in situations like this - obama has provided that calm steady leadership.
Gregory asks about unemployment numbers - - O’Mally says there is no important issue than unemployment - obama’s leadership has saved the day) foreclosures, car companies, jobs (Hallelujah and can I get an Amen?!)
MdDonnell - we’ve lost 864,000 jobs. We’ve added 5 Trillion to our budget and have an unemployment rate over 8%...not a good record. gas rates have doubled....can’t think of a single thing the administration has done (other than stimulus) to affect the economy. Romney is what we need!
Gregory asks about aboriton bill - McDonnell says it was one bill among thousands he signed/dealt with. Gregory asks were you wrong to sign this bill (regarding requiring ultrasounds).....McDonnell tries to explain this was about an informed consent requirement....lots of healthcare decisions require a consent.....really tries to avoid the focus on “social” issues.
Gregory still wants to talk about “war on women’s” issues, so he moves on to O’malley - O’Malley - says these cultural issues are sadly (I think he wiped away a tear or two /s), are crowding out the bigger issues involving our economy.
MTP Round Table
Peggy Noonan thinks Romney has ablitly to grind away, not worried about the up and down....(what a visual.....thanks, Peggy)
Marsha Blackburn - people in TN are conversatives, they wanted a candidate that will focus on jobs/eonomy and listen to them
The REV Al - people are more concerned about jobs/economy vs the social issues.
EJ Dionne - Romney is the favorite, but has proplems with strong conservatives/evangelical Christians....but his bigger problem is the “class” problem. Romney wins the vote of the wealthier voters.
Face The Nation: B.S. tells Newt that McCain is worried that it will hurt Romney to continue as we are with neither Newt nor Santorum dropping out and Newt reminded McCain he has a bad memory. He got the nomination early and lost to Obama!!!!! LOL!!!
Fox National News said there was “an incident” prior to the U.S. soldier shooting those Afghans. No more details than that right now. The networks are saying they don’t know what caused it and they did not mention an incident.
MTP talking abouit inflammatory rhetoric out there. Peggy Noonan says there is horrible, mysoginistic (I am SOOOOOOO sick of this “trending” word, that I refuse to learn how to spell it) war on women problem in our conversation.
obama should have been more of a leader and told “the guys” to wait a minute, slow down, ask what are we saying?
oh-la-la Peggy is so pleased with the “nothing” that just came out of her mouth.....let’s see if everyone else will pile on.
EJ Dionne disagrees - we should be able to disagree and do it passionately.
Blackburn says we should celebrate the freedom to have that debate, even if it’s passionate.
Rev. Al even if we disagree doesn’t mean we’re race-baiters, etc.
Okay, everyone made more sense than Peggy. Soooooo, Peggy tries to come to her own defense and chime in with, well, yes, but we shouldn’t be using words like slut, whore, etc.
We almost prostrate ourselves in apology, but the Afghans make no such apology for the actions of their people and incredibly demand that the personnel involved in the Koran burning should be prosecuted. In other words, the Afghans try to justify the actions of their people based on some sort of contrived provocation.
Just food for thought. I have been a listener of Rush Limbaugh for over twenty years. I have also come to the opinion & belief that Mr. Limbaugh usually parses his words very carefully and never utters a word that he has not previously thought out. I am not a conspiracy dude, but......is it possible that the Limbaugh rant last week was planned and....without going through all the details, the Obamabots and the media gulped down the bait.... and then preceded to plunge into their own fashioned destruction when both the “Fluke” incident failed and The Obama contraception mandate flushed down the toilet!!!
It appears to me that the Rush Limbaugh move was an opening salvo, now accompanied by many others including Hannity, O’Reilly, Levin Ingraham, the Breitbart team,etc., to once and for all, really and truly expose the fraud and farce that Barack Hussein Obama really is!!! Political death by a thousand cuts, works, and....so does the Chinese drip by drip torture work effectively.
To me, the attack on Obama has begun in earnest, and....will be followed by the whoever the Republican nominee for POTUS may be. I have noticed, that every single day, another drip, another drop falls on the head and shoulders of failed POTUS Obama!!! If this true, folks keep it up!!!
Thanks for the chart, kabar. Regarding the “jobs” situation....anyone with half a brain and paying attention knows it’s not getting better. There are few career jobs available. If you want to work in a wharehouse, at a restaurant, maybe, but private sector jobs that will support a typical family are few are far between.
Our guys don't have a clue!! It will be a miracle if we overcome their incompetence.
And, if we do, the New Media will have to do it.Our leadership is struggling at best.
LOL, that is funny. Poor John.
I doubt it.
When you have 15 hours a week to come up with stuff on your own, sooner or sooner you will screw up.
Rush proved once again he is human,he did screw up.
But,what happened after he screwed up reminds me of the dingy harry letter he auctioned off.
He handled things brilliantly once more. The end analysis of his comments are that he will have more listeners than before,better sponsors,and at least two sponsors that tried to come back.
Who has the last word?
Rush Limbaugh and few are surprised.
